  • Not only salmon, but detailed written description of the various types of salmon and growth. And now you can see natural salmon spawning scenes and real egg have crevices of rocks in the River next to the funny in was. Said not only salmon but finally exhibited include carp, invasive freshwater fish.

  • It is a street name, salmon is the main Aquarium. It is always familiar fish species because no glitz but good clear to the children. Swimming shishamo I rarely find in the Aquarium.

  • Very good guide I recommend parking near market stalls of baked corn. You want to get it again if the opportunity arises.
